Set default Email account 2

Setting up and managing multiple email accounts on a webOS device is a relatively easy task, thanks to Synergy and features like the "All Inboxes" folder. However, only one email account can be your "default" email account that all new emails will be addressed from when creating a new message from either a universal search lookup or by tapping the  icon from the main folders page of the email app.

To set your default email account:

  1. Launch the Email App
  2. Swipe down from the top-left of the screen to bring down the Email Application drop-down menu and select "Preferences & Accounts
  3. Scroll to the bottom "DEFAULT ACCOUNT" section and tap on the existing account. A pop-up will appear allowing you to select your desired account
  4. Swipe back to return to email

Note that responding to an email or creating a new message from within a mail folder will always use that specific account for the "FROM" sender and not your default account. Also, you can always tap on the "FROM" row on the top of an new email message to change the sending address.

If I write a new E-Mail in the "FROM" field is not the name of the Account but the login-name of the Mailserver (whitch is different in my case). Is there a patch to change the display from login-name to account name?

The password on my account suddenly changes from my 10-character password to 6 characters and I cannot receive my mail. This has happened several times, and now the program will not accept the correct password.
